Review:
This disc from Denmark is to be much welcomed. Bo Holten has a good feeling for the composer; his Eventyr is full blooded and his scoring of the Grieg-like songs is mostly skilful and idiomatic.
BBC Music Magazine
In short this is a completely recommendable version of Delius's visionary dream of the high mountains and of the awed immediacy of mortality and transience that these high realms provoke.
